The Government of Singapore will develop modern technology to transport and extract low-carbon hydrogen fuel, with nation-wide deployment scheduled in 2030. Clean fuel from this system for electric vehicles (EV) as well as for power generation for the grid.

A consortium, comprising the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the National University of Singapore (NUS), Japan-based Chiyoda Corporation, among other industrial players, will oversee the import of hydrogen and support its commercial use.

Low-carbon hydrogen will be produced overseas in countries like Australia and Chile using renewable sources such as solar and wind energy. Liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC) will then transport the fuel to Singapore.

The consortium is aiming semi-commercialisation of the technology by 2025 before fully commercialising it in 2030.
